Profile Information

Welcome, friend! 

Thanks for entering my creative writing corner. 

A little about Joy Shaw —  I write YA fiction to empower girls to become the best version of themselves. As a woman who has healed from complex trauma, I wrote THE STARLET REAPER — ROSA’S RAGE to offer trauma survivors hope that a body and mind can heal. In my daily life, I’m a stay-at-home mom and a part-time child-care specialist. Call me adventurous, a lot bit zany too. I enjoy backpacking rugged terrain, cross-country skiing, Finnish saunas and vacations to national parks. My life would not be complete without my son, husband and my writing.

I share my stories with you because everyone deserves a safe space to dream. May you be inspired!
